The guys at G&S Custom Guitars design and produce original custom guitars of fine quality and provide excellent repair & support services for all things electric guitar. After seeing the first three shop designs from them I immediately discussed a commission of two custom Guits. I was very impressed with the fine quality they crafted right from the first original serial #001… which has been sold They just finished serial #002, a modern telecaster (T-Style) based designs with versatile electronics like 4-way phased selector switch for wide range of sound. SN/003 currently out of design, materials selection and in production, will be a unique original six string Rock&Blues electric guitar. G&S Custom Guitars are: Greg Westergreen - musician, designer, a true woodworking craftsman. Michael Stevens - musician, designer, Guitronics guru.

I was reminiscing about the good ole' days when you could actually walk into a music store and talk to someone who knew what they were talking about. But alas I can't seem to find one anymore, oh there are some shops that pretend to have your best interests in mind and then there are those shops that think they know what is cool in theory. But they usually either have a corporate interests breathing down their neck or at least put on an heir to that affect. Then there is ENCORE MUSIC! Whenever I walk in there I am treated like a musician with respect and dignity. I like that! I'm not just a dollar sign. Chad (the owner) always knows, not only what is cool but usually has it as well. What's cool about his shop is he caters to all levels of musicianship from beginner to pro. His shop is a veritable treasure chest of cool gear! My suggestion would be, if you are looking for cool used gear of any kind give Encore Music a serious look first! You will be pleasantly surprised!
I love this shop. I have always been treated fairly by Chad the owner. I have been a customer of the shop since the mid to late 90's and it is my first stop when I am looking for something new. I want an honest opinion when I go there, not a sales pitch. Chad's expertise on guitars and amps are exactly why I go there. His selection is excellent. The store is a bit cluttered, but there are a lot of gems hidden around every corner. In fact, I just bought a Martin based off of his recommendations. I recommend his store to everyone that asks.
